Picked this up a while back in the usual red colour with yellow decals.
Thought I'd Storm it up a bit....:lol:
Having painted it I got a few bits together with a 'Carbon' theme.
I had not been able to start building it with being sooo busy doing other stuff.
Well here she is:-....finally!

Having seen it in the real a few weeks ago I must say its stunning.

The paint is flawless and looks spot on.

Stunning. Another top job Jon.

I am a big fan of the Mantra, always have been, but what you have done takes a great looking bike and puts it in an completely different league :shock:

With autumn and winter on their way, it'd be a shame to get it dirty....... nah, go get it muddy :twisted:
